  • I swear, nearly every condo built in DC in the last ten years has those exact cabinets, counter tops, and stainless steel appliances.

  • Oh – and you couldn’t pay me to live on that section of 18th Street. “Noise reduction windows” or not, it’s going to be loud as hell.

    • A LOT of people will see this as a desirable feature.

      • +1,000. Young people who live on 18th in Adams Morgan don’t sleep or work much, but party nearly 24/7, so it doesn’t matter if it’s noisy.

      • When I was 25, I would have killed to live right on 18th street.

        • Oh, I know – I’ve lived a half block off of 18th St since I was 26 (a LONG time ago now…) and proximity to the bars, etc. is certainly desirable at that age, but even when I was – ahem – partaking of the amenities of the area on a regular occasion, there are still times where one just needs/wants to sleep. Even a half block off at the quieter end of 18th, I still am woken up regularly by drunken screaming idiots at 2am. I love my neighborhood, and take the good with the bad, but living directly on 18th would be hell, IMHO…

          • I live half a block off the very heart of 18th Street and I find that I cannot hear any of the street noise on even the busiest of weekends. The windows in my apartment are fairly new (though never advertised as noise canceling,) and when they’re closed I live only with the noise created inside the building. I have a balcony from which I can see 18th Street, and even when I’m outside the noise is muffled enough so that it’s not bothersome. I sleep, I have a job with standard hours, and I do not party 24/7–despite all of my crotchety-old-person qualities, I love where I live. The side streets are a quite oasis while the main drag offers excitement if and when I want it. This is easily the most convenient-to-everything location I’ve lived in. Haters gunna hate– but in Adams Morgan this baller is going to continue ballin’ (in quiet comfort, thank you very much.)

    • +500 Wanting to live near 18th street and wanting to live on it are two different things.

    • The “you couldn’t pay me” was exactly my first reaction. And to me, this is a little far from either Woodley, U St, or Columbia Heights to tout “walk to Metro” as a selling point (yes technically you can walk to those stations, but to me that distance is more fitting for a leisurely stroll on a nice day, when you’re not in a hurry, as opposed to actually being a convenient walk to Metro if you’re in a rush, if it’s raining, if it’s ungodly hot, if you’re carrying anything, etc.) Never stops real estate ads from trying, though.

      • nothing would be ‘close to the metro’ if you used those standards, other than buildings that sit on top of the stations. i mean, what DO you consider close? how many blocks? how many minutes walk? plus, why ride the metro when you can grab the 42 bus, the 16th street buses or the circulator? all of which are actually more reliable than the red line if you actually want to get to your destination. (and we haven’t even touched on how you can walk to downtown in less time than the metro can get you there). what you seem to be saying is that you’re too lazy for this apartment. in which case, why not get yourself a car and move to the suburbs?

        people in this city like to act like they are all about the urban lifestyle and yet somehow, we end up with clowns that object to a walk that’s longer than 3 minutes.

        • Hey, maybe that could be my new screen name. I like it! For the record, I’ve lived in cities for 17 years, never owned a car, and either use walking, bus, subway, or bike to get around (but, you know, go right ahead with the indignant assumptions and name-calling). Everyone has their own opinion of what constitutes “close.” I just happen to think it’s a little silly and disingenuous when real estate ads tout Metro proximity as a selling point, when (as another commenter pointed out), the stations are about a mile away. To me personally, 5-10 minutes constitutes “close.” With a 15-20 minute walk to a Metro station (which is probably about how long it takes the average person to walk a mile, when you take into account stopping at intersections, getting stuck behind the occasional block of slower-moving pedestrians, etc.), you’re approaching a point where it gets a little less practical for everyday commuting. To me. Other people may have different opinions, and that’s cool. And the fact that there are numerous bus lines nearby (which I actually use far more than I use Metrorail) or that one could walk to downtown easily only further prove my point that it’s kind of silly and irrelevant real estate-speak to be hyping up that you can walk to Metro stations from the apartment.

      • Agreed with Anonymous 4:09 on “yes technically you can walk to those stations, but to me that distance is more fitting for a leisurely stroll on a nice day, when you’re not in a hurry, as opposed to actually being a convenient walk to Metro if you’re in a rush, if it’s raining, if it’s ungodly hot, if you’re carrying anything, etc.).”
        I used to live in Adams Morgan. One of the reasons that I moved was that I had to take a bus to get to Metro. Yes, in theory I could have walked, but it would have made my commute a good 15 minutes longer each way.

      • Woodley Park, U Street and Dupont Circle stations are all about a mile away. So I agree that the listing agent is being disingenuous to call it “walkable to Metro.”
